IT was all smiles at South Hampstead High School today as girls received a stunning set of GCSE results.
In total, 23 of the 94 pupils achieved 10A*s or more - almost a quarter. Of these, eight girls scooped 11A*s.
Headteacher Jenny Stephen said: "I'm absolutely delighted both globally for the statistics of all the results but much more importantly, I'm thrilled for the individual girls. These results reflect their hard work and the inspirational teaching."
India Kahn, 16, who lives in Hampstead, achieved 10A*s and was overcome with emotion when she opened her results.
"I wanted to do well but I didn't think I'd get all A*s," she told the Ham High.
"I wasn't going to open them straight away, it was a shock, but I'm really happy."
Manuella Kanter, 16, of Barnet achieved 11A*s. She said: "I was predicted these grades but I wasn't sure I was going to get them. It was really stressful but it's all rewarding if it comes down to this. I feel quite drained but relieved."
Dr Nina Cook, Head of Years 10 and 11 at the Maresfield Gardens school, said:
"They are a wonderful year group and they should be very proud of themselves.
"They are intelligent girls but they've worked consistently hard over the two years and they haven't been complacent.
